We were impressed with the overall layout of the home itself from all interior furnishings to the breathtaking ocean view. All appliances, barbecue etc were excellent and worked well. We were very impressed with how the home was well concealed by the planting around the perimeter giving lots of privacy. We had some minor concerns with the cleaning as I do not think the main family rm hardwood floors were washed from the last tenants as spills marks were noticeable all around the stereo/TV area and especially around the kitchen garbage can which I personally washed. Also a little better carpet vacuuming would remove all the dead bugs under all the windows doors upstairs & down. Some problems with a plugged toilet and broken window blinds when we arrived were corrected within a couple of days. The martini pool was never cleaned from our arrival and was full of bugs and debris by months end. One item that my wife was not happy was how hot the home got during the stay. It was cooler outside on some days and very uncomfortable to sleep at night. We keep a round the clock vigil on the window blinds/screens etc for daytime sun and cool ocean winds but it was not enough. The skylights may need some sort of blind from the straight on heat. A/C may also be a good investment down the road which would help out during the summer months. A standard oscillating fan would also help keep air moving. If the heat issue inside the home was not such a major problem my ranking would have been much higher on your scale for all areas.

Thanks Rick & Family
